The 37th Annual Time and Frequency Metrology Seminar will be held June 5-8, 2012, at the National Institute of Standards and Technology in Boulder, Colorado. Don Jewell, GPS World’s contributing editor for Defense and PNT (positioning, navigation, and timing), will be attending.

The Time and Frequency Division of the National Institute of Standards and Technology is offering the course on understanding clocks, oscillators, atomic frequency standards, RF and optical synchronization, optical oscillators, quantum information, optical cooling and heating; making precise frequency, time, phase-noise, and jitter measurements; and establishing measurement accuracy and traceability. This four-day course is the most comprehensive available, organizers say.

The 2012 Seminar will include lectures in direct-digital PM noise measurements, how to specify frequency uncertainty, oscillator needs for new radars and surveillance systems, GPS vs. other global navigation satellite systems, photonic (laser-based) oscillators, chip-scale atomic clocks, femtosecond laser dividers, active PM-noise reduction techniques in oscillators, millimeter-wave applications and noise measurements, and ultra-low noise amplifier design techniques.
